My team's leaders (Boom, Roelandts, Gesink, VDB2) from last year are all still under contract this year. Last year they were a bit unlucky; this year will be better. I got some great domestiques (Velits, Sanchez, Bodnar) in support and a proper fast sprinter (Pelucchi). The best bit is I got the master of the failed but spirited long range attack: Amets Txurruka! :disco:

23 riders, 19 different teams. That is quite surprising.

What you think of my Europcar Squad?

I had to build a complete new team as my team is new in the World Tour for 2016.

Leaders: M. Matthews and R. Majka (both should be able to land in the top 25)

Guys like  S. Kruijswijck, S. Bennett, J. Dombrowski, D. Impey, M. Bršndle should be able to add some solid points.

And the rest can hopefully support a bit:
A. Hansen, S. Reichenbach, Y. Martinez, B. Kadri, J. Janse van Rensburg, R. Janse van Rensburg, M. Wyss, D. Nerz, M. Burghardt, S. Pardilla, E. Cappechi, E. Battaglin, E. Buchmann, N. Politt (neo pro), C. Laporte, P. Martens, L. DePlus (neo pro).
Some of them could be good for a surprise. I believe in Buchmann for example. But also think that Nerz, Reichenbach and Battaglin will have a better season. But we will see.

Plus 200k to spend for 3-4 more depth guys so I will have around 28 riders at the end.


But sure where I stand in the league, but hope I can fight for a spot in the first half.

Also building a new team and I'm very happy with it
Leaders should be Gilbert,Bardet and Felline
Co-Leaders:Visconti,Wallays and maybe Arndt
Others I expect good performance are McCarthy,Polanc,Rowe,Atapuma,Norris and maybe Barbero
It's interesting that I have 5 riders from Belgium and 5 from England,the other big nations are not so well represented 2 from France,2 from Italy,2 from Spain and no one from Netherlands

I do hope Swift has a better season next year. Easy to forget that, not long ago, he was inches away from winning a Monument.

Big year for Pinot, I reckon.

Yh it shouldn't be hard for swift to have a better year to be honest. I think my team has a decent balance. it lacked a cobbled classics guy so hoping boonen is fit, and if so could be bargain of the year.

The problem is will Martin and Rolland replace the holes left by Landa and Trofimov (bearing in mind i had them for 210k and 130k) as well as loosing Moreno. Thats a whole lot of points so I cant see it to be honest.

My filler guys are also less strong in my opinion.

Id say top 10 would be an achievement with my team

as its already gonna be down at a squad of around 21 riders

Leaders id say are: Froome, Lopez Moreno, Formolo, Taaramae, Caruso, Fernandez, Meintjes, Sepulveda, Hirt, Zardini

Sprinters: Mareczko, Marini, Van Genechten

All-round: Valgren, Betancur, Gougeard, Dillier, Paterski, Kung, Martin, Waeytens

TT:

Unknown: Bernard, Contreras


Compared to last year I think my team is a bit stronger. I certainly have more one-day potential in theory but that does depend a lot on Betancur's level of motivation.

I'm very keen to see some progress from Valgren and Dillier, and I think I have a potential future superstar in Kung. Paterski should also perform is some of the Classics.

For the mountains Froome obviously, Caruso should lead the Giro for BMC, Meintjes looked good last year, Formolo has talent, as do Fernandez, Sepulveda and Taaramae. Hirt too showed some good riding last year. I also spent big on Lopez Moreno because he was injured for several months last year and yet still looked very strong on his mid-season return.

I've got a very young team in essence, so probably some good and bad. Average age 24.3.

I think Vacansoleil is already record braeking. I guess I'm the first team who has a developing team. I'm also the first team with only 29 riders as a max. And I'm the first team who paid a salary of 30k for a pass at the neo draft.

I'm now certain that I'll finish last. I'm happy to participate in other leagues so this one can be in a rest modus already...

    October 14, 2019, 01:49:03 AM

    October 14, 2019, 01:53:50 AM

    October 14, 2019, 01:59:13 AM

    October 14, 2019, 02:01:04 AM
  • indiansnation: u got a very good team yeagg
    October 14, 2019, 02:01:28 AM
  • Brent: Same concept especially if you consider NFLC.  The NFL salary cap is the same as our $188.2M year.  The difference is RL football you have to pay offensive lineman and most teams carry 6-8 with left tackle being about the highest paid non QB position.  That was until recently, but they still get paid.  So if you pay your QB $40M/yr, your LT $15M/yr and the rest of your line a total of about $25-35M year, that could be $90M on 6-7 players.  You still have to field all of your skill positions and defense for the other $100M.

  • Yeagg: I should be better than a .500 team
    October 14, 2019, 02:02:00 AM

    October 14, 2019, 02:02:36 AM
  • Yeagg: Isn't that where drafting comes in handy
    October 14, 2019, 02:02:49 AM

    October 14, 2019, 02:03:34 AM

  • indiansnation: i think its harder guessing what yound guys will produce in nfl than baseball
    October 14, 2019, 02:05:31 AM
  • Brent: The Cowboys got lucky with La'ell Colllins.  He was 1st round talent, but fell out of the draft to UDFA due to false allegations that he was cleared of. So they got one of if not the best OT from that draft for peanuts.  Eventually he will need to be paid.
    October 14, 2019, 02:06:28 AM
  • Brent: Yeah, the draft is huge and also hitting on UDFAs.  Teams have to develop and then keep their own talent or they'll go broke and end up in salary cap hell.
    October 14, 2019, 02:07:09 AM
  • Yeagg: So basically just like baseball
    October 14, 2019, 02:17:10 AM
  • indiansnation: yep nfl u gotta watch how much u pay look at browns they are going to have that problem in 2021 they have alot of good tallent thats going to need to get paid.
    October 14, 2019, 02:17:13 AM
  • Yeagg: And no way Brian. Baseball has 40 rounds and still most of those guys never even sniff the MLB
    October 14, 2019, 02:17:33 AM
  • Yeagg: More 1st round picks are bust than even play a full season
    October 14, 2019, 02:18:02 AM
  • Brent: They also have between now and then to figure out who will be resigned and who will be replaced and don't they still have quite a few 1st round picks between now and then?
    October 14, 2019, 02:24:21 AM
  • indiansnation: Hey if u have a top notch gm with a great scouting staff u can make any player u draft be great. Look at Boston their minors sick why is that because they suck at drafting.
